    During the first lockdown I borrowed a bike from my mate to enable me to do some sort of exercise as the pounds were pilling on. Like golf I was hooked. Bought myself a MTB bike through the cycle to work scheme. Unfortunately, like golf, I want a new shiny. I hadn't looked in the different...

    Anyone Blog?

    Over the last year or so I've wrote a few articles that have been published on a local fanzine about my football club and really enjoyed doing it. Writing was never my thing at school and I didn't think I could do it but found that I really enjoyed the whole process of it and also really...

    The demise of a golf club

    Won't name names but played a course last week and was shocked/saddened to see the state of the golf club. Played it loads over the years but not for around 12 months and the difference was terrible. The club shop looked like a municiples that's main focus was purely to take green fee's and...
